I am pretty sure that the ECS will require passports for anyone going on next seasons bus trips into Canada.
This makes the border crossings much easier.

I was thinking more like tell people when they join (re-new) to make sure you have an up-to-date passport because it takes some time to get one.

If people go RIGHT NOW and do their passport applications with the State Department office in downtown Seattle, they'll get them in time for the MLS Cup. Even if you don't do the "expedited" application.

And a passport or passport card or enhanced DL should absolutely be a requirement for bus trips to Vancouver from here on out. Too much hassle otherwise. Holding up an entire bus for a single person is ludicrous and rude of that one person.

I agree. If you going to try and cross without a passport, do it in your own car. Otherwise GET A PASSPORT NOW

You WILL be left behind. It happened on the trip to Vancouver during preseason this year.

Is it possible that the entire behind-the-goal section at the opposite end of the stadium will be filled by TFC season-ticket holders, but the seats on this end is open for single-game tickets during the regular season (i.e flexible seating availability for the MLS Cup)? If that's the case, that might explain why they placed both supporters groups in the same end.

Obviously it makes no sense to have the two sets of supporters on the same end if there is any way around it. But as long as the MLS continues to have home-club season-ticket holders be required to have it included in their season-ticket package (whether it's for that season or the following one), there will not be much wiggle room in terms of where to fit in supporters of the participating clubs in places like Qwest and Toronto.

Here! Wife and I just landed in YYZ. Staying at the novotel downtown. Looking forward to seeing everyone. Is it the loose moose then tomorrow and Saturday?

We came early because we fly standby and saw an opening.
